All set to host Australia in ODI series starting on Sept 17

Presence of wrist spinners in playing XI helps team bag crucial breakthroughs Rohit Sharma 'No excuses of burnout or being on tight schedule'

Even the cricket boards of the two nations came forth to step into the fiasco. "We have got guys who can take on the role and performwell", Rohit said.

At home, India, needless to say, starts favourite. Virat Kohli and his team are all set to face the series. Having said that, he has his first-choice openers down pat.

Dhawan, who has a particular affinity for the Australian attack (626 runs from 15 ODIs at 44.71), has been in fine form for the last few months.

One can argue that both Sri Lanka and West Indies had been World Cup winners in the past, but today both are struggling to make the cut directly for the 2019 World Cup in England. Looking at No. 4, it is Manish Pandey or KL Rahul. Once that is sorted, the Indian batting line-up looks like a well-oiled machine, which can deliver under any circumstances.

While addressing the press conference, Kohli revealed that he is backing Ajinkya Rahane to bat at top of the order.

Robin Singh has dismissed Michael Clarke's claims that experience in the IPL will give Australia the edge against the hosts and is confident India will "walk away with the ODI series". India lost this match by 1 run, which coincidentally saw the debuts of Tom Moody and NS Sidhu. If he finally sits out, the onus will be on Kuldeep and Chahal.

Kohli had hinted that he would like to go in with two allrounders in Hardik Pandya and Axar Patel. Or Jadeja... he is a proper left-arm all-rounder. He received treatment from the team physio and the area was later bandaged.

Google Deletes Inactive Android Device Backups After 2 Months
Soon after, Tanglebrook noticed that the 6P backup was missing from the Google Drive Backup folder where it was previously stored. "If you don't use your device for 2 weeks, you may see an expiration date below your backup , for example , expires in 54 days".

Capitalising on the short boundaries at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, Rohit Sharma stroked his way into the record books, becoming the third batsman to score an ODI double century, scoring 209 off 158 deliveries with a world record 16 sixes and 12 fours.

In those days when totals in mid 200s were considered pretty good, India challenged Australia with a target of 228 in the final of the Pepsi Cup (1998-99 season) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi.

The two sides last played a bilateral series in both formats in January 2016, "down under".

The format changes from the five-day Tests to the fifty over ODIs but the intensity, passion and will to win will be the same, something both teams have adopted from their fiery, oft-grumpy leaders Steve Smith and Virat Kohli respectively. While the humidity of Chennai could add to the visiting side's woes, it will try to mend the odds with a smooth beginning. Agar and Adam Zampa along with part-time spinner Maxwell and Head will also be key to Australia's chances on Sunday.

"It is important to keep picking up wickets and have breakthroughs throughout". The five-match ODI series will be followed by three T20Is.

Kohli faltered in the Test series - 46 runs in five innings, his poorest return from a Test series on home soil - and has a point to prove against Australia.
